The Safety Patrol students going on the trip to Cincinnati need to meet at the Campus Center on Sunday, May 18th @ 7am - Campus Center. Please contact Mrs. Taylor if you have any questions. Reminder, the students are to wear their Safety Patrol t-shirt on Sunday.
Our 5th grade party will take place the morning of Thursday, May 23 from 8:30-11:30. Parents are welcome to join us! Students should dress in their house colors for the festivities! That afternoon the Middle School will be leading the Elementary in some games and activities. Students need to bring backpacks on Thursday for desk cleanout.
Friday, May 24th, students may be checked out anytime after 10am. Students may wear summer-themed shirts and jeans or shorts.
Last year we began a school tradition of Keepsake Bibles. Students have highlighted each of the verses they have learned throughout the years, and each homeroom teacher has written a special message to your child. These cherished mementos will be coming home soon!

Bible- Mrs. Blankenship
This week we will reflect upon all God has taught us during 5th grade. It has been a privilege to help teach and disciple your child this year, and I am looking forward to celebrating God's goodness with these students!
There will be no verse this week.
Reading- Mrs. Taylor
Students will conclude reading their Mini-Book Study books. Students that are not on the Safety Patrol trip will be creating a fun iMovie trailer on the book they read to be shared when we are all back together on Wednesday.
All 4th quarter AR goals need to be met by Wednesday, May 22nd.
Language Arts- Mrs. McCollum
During the last week of school, students will finish working on creating music videos for Light and Sound Energy. We will also publish brochures to advertise during our rollercoaster rallies in Science.
It has been a great honor and pleasure to serve as the 5th grade Writing and Science teacher this year. Thank you all for your continued support and prayers for our 5th graders as they transition to middle school! I am so proud of our writers!
Mathematics- Mrs. Blankenship
I was so pleased with the students' performance on Friday's test! Next week we will participate in a data collecting and analysis activity to determine the 5th grade activities students valued the most. I'll use their feedback as we plan for next year's 5th graders!
We will not have any IXL modules for the remainder of the year.
Science- Mrs. McCollum
For the last week of school, students will be participating in a rollercoaster rally to study forces and motion. This is a STEM project that will incorporate interpreting and graphing data in a variety of ways. Students will research the world's largest, tallest, and most expensive roller coasters in the world. They will also construct and conduct trial runs of their own roller coasters for inspection.
It has been a great honor and pleasure to serve as the 5th grade Writing and Science teacher this year. Thank you all for your continued support and prayers for our 5th graders as they transition to middle school! I am so proud of our scientists!
Social Studies- Mrs. Taylor
Students that made below 70% on the chapter 14 test are encouraged to do corrections. They need to go to Showbie (Social Studies) to see the expectations - due before 5pm on 5/20. I want them to end well!
Next week, the students who do not go on the Safety Patrol trip, will be creating an iPad project on one of the events we studied this year in Social Studies. These projects will be shared with their classmates on Wednesday, when we are all back together.
